Pee Monkey Plant Bloom Review

Review Happylatte By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Pee Monkey Plant Bloom Review

There's just no getting around it... things are going to be said and I'm in the unfortunate position of having to say them, but it's hard not to feel a little bit weird when you start talking about Pee Monkey Plant Bloom by happylatte. I mean, the name says it all really; you'll need to pee on plants with a monkey to help the garden to grow. The gameplay itself is not unlike that of games like Angry Birds and players have a limited amount of... 'shots'... to make the plants bloom. Dra…

Red Devil Review

Review hare By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Red Devil Review

Sometimes you're only after something simple to while away your spare time and Red Devil by hare might just be the puzzle platformer for you if you need a quick time-killer. Armed with little more than directional buttons and a jump key, you'll need to solve 20 currently available levels in order to complete the game. Everything including your character is subjected to forces that can result in being pushed and pulled around the screen and if you're not careful the simple act of a mov…

Q Pang Review

Review BOBTAN studio By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Q Pang Review

Q Pang by BOBTAN studio isn't above playing with cliches. You're a cat out to defend his planet from gelatinous aliens with a delusion of universal dominance and you'll have to deploy cakes, bombs and a few bullets to keep them at bay; you know, that old chestnut. What? You haven't heard it before? Well no matter, you'll slip right in to things despite the somewhat odd translation and spelling mistakes for the English text. Over five worlds, each with five increasingly difficult level…

Smurfs' Village Review

Smurfs' Village Review

I guess it was only a matter of time before someone realized that the Smurfs lived in a village, 'And hey! What a great idea it'd be if you could manage that little town?!'. So, lo and behold, Capcom have created the official Smurfs' Village and all your usual Farmville-ish obsessions can now be dedicated to defending the Smurfs from their ever present nemesis, Gargamel. Much like other freemium farm/town management style titles, you'll need to earn levels through experience earned fr…

Chrominance Review

Review Andrea Mazzini By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Chrominance Review

Chrominance by Andrea Mazzini and EFlat Games challenges players to mix their skills at timing and combining colors to score it large in this strange physics based arcade title. Orbs of paint will make their way on to the screen at regular intervals, but should they collide with another orb they'll combine and splatter over the background. To score you'll need to make sure this combination lands on the correctly colored background by swiping them around the screen and if you're playin…

Kiko: The Last Totem Review

Review FABULAPPS By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Kiko: The Last Totem Review

I'm kind of weird in that I don't find a puzzle to be overly satisfying unless I feel like breaking something in half before inspiration strikes me and all is calm once again. Kiko: The Last Totem currently provides 150 chances to throw your iDevice in to a blender with its infuriatingly cute puzzles that can be shared with your friends, so at least they too can know your anguish. The aim of Kiko is to get Kiko and his friends to sit comfortably on their respective pads before the lev…

CAPCOM ARCADE Review

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
CAPCOM ARCADE Review

If you spent any time at an arcade in the 80s or 90s or you have immense personal luck of having a classic arcade remaining open in your area, then you should already be familiar with the lineup of CAPCOM ARACDE as it sports a classic quartet of titles that are likely to have devoured your spare change in the past. Players can choose from four basic titles, opting to spend their in-game tokens on Street Fighter 2, Ghouls 'N Ghosts, 1942 or Commando. Three free tokens are handed out ev…

Zombie Racers Review

Review Big Head Games Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Zombie Racers Review

You've got your cars and they're meant for racing; and then you've got your zombies and they're meant for squishing; so it's only natural that in Zombie Racers by Big Head Games you'll spend your time squishing zombies as you race to the finish line. And you'd think this would be a fairly cut and dry title - racers aren't exactly rocket science and with that added sprinkling of zombies you have something interesting to use to mix up the races. However all is not as it seems and while…


Riddim Ribbon Review

Review Tapulous, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Riddim Ribbon Review

If you're a fan of rhythm games then it's hard not to have come across Tapulous and their Tap Tap Revenge series. However, the company has since decided to spread its wings and attempt something new and now players can try their side-project Riddim Ribbon without needing to listen to The Black Eyed Peas. Much like Tapulous' other basic packs this is a free title packaged with a few songs and access to a store with song packs to add to your collection. In this title you'll be presented…

Galaxy on Fire 2™ Review

Review FISHLABS By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Galaxy on Fire 2™ Review

UPDATE (17th Feb, 2012): With update after update pushing Galaxy on Fire 2 further and further forward, there's no question that this title represents the best the platform has to offer in the Privateer-style of games currently available. From its numerous tweaks including visual overhauls and content updates (with Valkyrie), you'd be hard pressed to find a better example of the genre for handheld devices. As such a score deserving of these updates has now been awarded to Galaxy on Fir…

Toyshop Adventures Review

Review Glu Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Toyshop Adventures Review

With the amount of physics based platformers on the App Store it seemed all but inevitable for a game to appear based on Little Big Planet. Toyshop Adventures by Glu is a freemium title where you'll explore various toy themed areas in order to reclaim the shop owner's lost marbles, making use of power-ups purchased with these marbles (or with your own cash) to reach the many hidden niches in each level. Toyshop Adventures doesn't mess around with the controls and players can move thei…

Attraxxion Review

Review Runaway Creations, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Attraxxion Review

Physics based puzzles have become a fairly standard title on the App Store and trying to stand out isn't always easy, especially when some top selling titles have held the limelight for so long. Attraxxion by Runaway Creations takes a decidedly different direction with its puzzle gameplay and instead of flinging objects past or around planets or trying to smash down a building, you're tasked with creating planetary objects to fill your quota. That's right, you're a robot that has been…

Panzer Elite Review

Review EASY Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Panzer Elite Review

Did I miss the memo where 'Easy' now means 'keep restarting until you figure out what the developer intended'? Don't mistake Panzer Elite by EASY Inc. for the regular sort of castle defense titles out there as your goal isn't to merely crush your enemy, but to sit there countering his units until you max out your upgrade score and then win. This isn't exactly covered in the tutorial - which I might add is merely a help screen with a handful of screens highlighting interface elements t…

Last Minute Hero Review

Review Squax By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Last Minute Hero Review

I really want to like Last Minute Hero by Squax, so instead of a harsh verbal reprisal lets consider this a sort of love letter to a game that attempts to do something exciting and interesting, but ends up breaking my heart by never managing to finish what it started. You play as a girl, perhaps a cosplayer of some sort, stuck in a cordoned off area of the Shibuya Crossing that is being invaded by giant mutated spiders. So naturally you whip out your weapons of destruction and go to t…


Crazy John Review

Crazy John Review

Sometimes, just sometimes I just can't let something like this slip by without comment. Crazy John by Triniti Interactive had some of the best potential to become a truly classic twin-stick shooter, but instead it chose to be a Minigore clone and ended up losing its way. The controls are standard for a twin-stick, with one stick used to move and the other to aim and shoot, while a small row of icons in the middle allow you to select your weapon of choice. Weapons vary in power and gen…
